A couple of my friends are reality show addicts, and list The Biggest Loser among their favorites. They’ve been trying to get me to watch that program for a couple of years now, but I’ve always resisted. Reality shows aren’t my thing, and watching people lose weight seems about as interesting as watching paint dry.
But then today I happened to be on the NBC website, so I decided to check out a few Biggest Loser pages. I saw Before and After photos of Bill, the guy who won the most recent season (I think), and I was absolutely floored by the change! Take a look:
Apparently, Bill dropped 164 pounds en route to winning the contest — and the $250,000 grand prize. I’m not sure how long it took him to lose all this weight, but I think it’s pretty amazing that he did! I wonder if these contestants are allowed to take Phentermine or similar substances. It’s hard to believe this weight loss is simply due to diet and exercise….
Anyway, I’m still not sold on this show. This summer would have to be very slow indeed for me to start watching The Biggest Loser on a regular basis!
